You think a stock 13' Rubi would have any issues, my buddy just picked one up and wants to come out.

nwbronco 12-18-2012 07:28 PM

Not on the North loop. That's a good stock rig trail. The south loop has been modified. I stock rig will end up working the undercarridge as well as bumpers on it.

TripleNickle 12-18-2012 08:50 PM

Ok, thanks. Am I required to have any type or pass to go there?

nwbronco 12-18-2012 09:20 PM

Yes. Discover Pass is required.

Bob, nice meeting you at the toys for toys run :) wish I could make this run but we are doing the polar express train ride to Rainer that day.

Drix 12-21-2012 12:41 AM

Gonna try to make it if I get my gas tank back in my jeep.

nwbronco 12-21-2012 01:22 PM

Y'all know that Tahuya is the missus' favorite trail. If you can't make this one; we'll be back there soon.

TripleNickle 12-21-2012 10:23 PM

Hi-

I'm a new Jeep owner, and I'd love to come out to Tahuya sometime! Are there any areas that a stock rig could handle solo? I'd love to get some practice. Thanks for any advice.

Thor72 12-21-2012 11:23 PM

The north side is t bad and I have a stock JK. Really had a blast out there !

Drix 12-21-2012 11:38 PM

I swear, I was putting my tank in tonight, Brand new Straps and Bam it just broke.

Not only did I have to run a Die over the threads to make the nut fit on them, this one just broke I was fitting it into place and I felt it just ease over and break.

No big deal I figured, I still have one old one that is good. I just ordered 2 for good measure. so I put the new strap in place and they are to big...

nwbronco 12-21-2012 11:53 PM

There are plenty of trails there that a stock rig can do. I recommend never wheelin' alone. Too many things can happen. You are more than welcome to tag along with us.

Thanks for the advice. I'd love to come out with you guys sometime. I'll keep an eye out for a run that I can make.

If it weren't for bad luck, you'd have none at all. Are you going to have to source another pair of straps?

nwbronco 12-22-2012 10:58 AM

We are heading out shortly. In the missus Blue '09 2DR JK. And the kid in her Yellow '04 TJ. Look for us around 10AM.

I went to tahuya first time on the 23 and man was it fun but i would not say a stock tj can make it threw south loop i went threw and barely made it almost rolled it twice but survived first time wheeling cant wait for next time. only have 30inch tires no lift and it was a challenge a few times

nwbronco 03-27-2013 10:23 AM

Where did you almost roll? The kid has run it several times in her stock TJ. We have run it as a group a couple of dozen times. No body has come to close to rolling. Tahuya is one of the safest trails in the state.
